That's a bummer, for sure. I started using rice hulls as insurance. Don't always need them, but I haven't had a stuck runoff when using them.

I finally got the garden in last weekend. I have Napa grape hybrid, large cherry, early girl, big boy, better boy, Roma, and Tomatillo tomatoes, California Wonder, Cajun Bell, Sweet Cherry hybrid, jalapeno, Sweet Golden Cali Wonder Peppers, Yellow Crookneck Squash, Zucchini, Straight 8 and Bush Pickling Cucumbers, Rhubarb, Hybrid Eggplant, Kentucky Wonder pole beans, Dill, Italian Oregeno, Purple Sage, Thyme, an Parsley. I'm sure I forgot something but this is to the best of my memory.
I started some asparagas root this year but won't get a harvest from that until next year.
Of course my hops but that's a different thread.
I'll post some pics soon.
Yeh volume speaking for a 5 gallon batch, pull the first gallon of wort and reduce down minimally to a half gallon, I reduce to a quart.
We munched our first 4 artichokes the other night. with melted butter and grapefruit (we were out of lemons). They were small and some of the stems were a little bitter but there is something magical about eating artichokes you grew your self.
still got to get the last of the tomatoes transplanted.
corn is sprouted and we are ready to plant our beans in with them. then squash a week or two later. vacation is coming up in just over a week so lots of time to putter in the garden.
